hoping it would inspire colleagues. you saw something different in the healthcare votes and rob ret bird who was 93 and clearly not in good health. so i was in the chamber in washington. you can't have any digital devices. you sit and you observe. and it was remarkable and touching how one by one, these senators were coming up to dole and gently placing their hands on his shoulders or, you know collapsing his hand and then they waited for him to get wheeled out and they voted against him. and something that i noted in the story. >> unbelievable. >> sick. >> sick. >> and the thing that i think was most revealing, what i wrote, two things very revealing about this. one, when they call a role call vote, usually people vocal eyes or verbalize their yeas and nays. some of the old brand republican senators would whisper their vote to the clerk or would hand gesture because they didn't want the audio of them voting against this. if you are going to vote against it, vote against it. >> man up and vote against. >> so i think the key votes ended up being thad

is in la joya at costco. >> we reported rob nabors, the chief's white house lobbyist on capitol hill in a private meeting with leadership staff said we are not moving on the debt seal, not moving on tax rates and entitlement savings. you have to do something. the "new york times" reported this morning that boehner and obama -- boehner has requested private negotiations with obama. i don't know what -- i am not sure why that's important at the that you can on the phone privately. they are looking for a way out they have signaled some private openness if they could kick it up to 37% instead of 39% if they get some entitlement savings they could sell. >> the president would get 39-6 for the upper income folks with doing nothing and no entitlement cuts by doing nothing? >> right. >> it would be a deal. you would guess the president would want some sort of package and wouldn't want to go over the cliff. it would be politically and substantively. this is what republican aids say. he has the chance to do something big. if he come our way i am not negotiating th

it up front. i say that's an invitation for someone to rob the church. i say you should take the offering and walk its -- lock it up. i believe in concealing carry. i have a concealed and carry. when people have a concealed carry, somebody at that school might have been able to deter this. if the federal government wants to help the schools, they should give the funding. they need to fund -- every school in the united states should be funded with money from the federal government so there can be a full-time police officer on staff in every building in every school of the united states. host: on twitter -- president obama talk about meaningful action last night. on the washington post, they're asking what does that mean? the wall street journal has an opinion piece as well responded to the shootings in connecticut. herman is an independent caller in louisiana. what's your opinion? caller: when you have a gun free zones, you advertise to these mentally ill people that there's nobody there that is armed and nobody can stop them. an intruder with a gun. host: what would you do? c

. perhaps, the only contender to have actually hugged president obama. or ohio senator rob portman, a constant presence next to mitt romney on the trail. virginia governor, bob mcdonnell, of the transvaginal proposal and scott walker whose union fighting ways made him a darling of the tea party. just to be clear, reports of the demise of the republican party are greatly exaggerated. the gop may have taken a licking, but they will most certainly keep on ticking. still, let's not be fooled by this new herd into thinking that we have a new party. reformed from lessons of november 6th. from this class alone, governors jindal, rick perry, scott walker have signalled their refusal to set up state-run health exchanges required by the affordable care act. marco rubio, paul ryan, michele bachmann, john thune and others have sworn allegiance to grover norquist by signing on to the federal taxpayer protection pledge. all thee three of the rising stars are women that doesn't mean they support women's reproductive choices. several would deny the women the right guaranteed to them by roe v. wade

dissension. >> meg was just a board member at the time. only member of the board who was not there was rob. we're going to talk about hp. i know consistently and i will be interested to see whether the theme that was brought a week ago when he decided to write this piece on deal book is going to start to gain currency. do you split the company? >> balance sheet is very important here. i don't know if you can. >> it's hard. it would take a long time. in these kind of things either you are for keeping the company together or then you're not. it can change quickly. you can't just say we're thinking about it. >> not to mention one last point here. anything they do strat edgicaeg from now on will be suspect. it's hard to convince people they can do anything at this point. >> you have to be a second-guessing pig here. >> second, third, fourth, fifth, it will go on. it's tough. >> banks beware. one in three americans would consider a mortgage from walmart and almost half from paypal. the problem, neither of those companies even offer mortgages brings us to this morning's squawk on the tweet. supp

of the investment theoretically isn't a way to incent it, right? >> hold on. i thought the deficit was a big rob and want to a measure that helps reduce the deficit help the economy? >> i just don't know. in the capital gains sense i personally think and i think it's also been proven in the past if you lower rates it increases the revenue to the government. we should be focused on revenue generation. >> let's talk about reality because you're somebody who has money and is looking at situations like this. has it changed your behavior on investments, you could make, you would make down the road? >> that's a great question. i would say me personally probably not. but, you know, i just -- when i look at the rest of the world and i look -- i can't understand it and i can't really know why do you think it is, why is there so much cash on the sidelines and earning such a low rate of return as we just saw pointed out? why aren't they investing it into things? what is holding it? i don't know -- >> what's happening at quicken loans, i know it's a privately held company. what are you doing in terms of job

should be banned. it was coined to make the wealthy sound like economic saviors. rob writes it really means i'm about to disrespect you. and armando writes i'm moderately optimistic because that is the epitome of getting nothing done. get rid of them all, that's my attitude. start some new ones. you have a busy night tonight. >> as you heard john harwood just saying, it might be hours until we actually get something done so we'll be on fiscal cliff watch on fast money. hopefully we'll have a deal to talk about. it's also about 2013 trades. predictions on the commodity front. top trade in the internet space. all of our traders will be prepared to give their top trades, as well. and of course we have broadcasting tonight in times square, heart of the biggest party in the universe. >> good luck getting home. >> really. >> have a great new year. >> thank you. you, too. >> we'll see you in 2013. here's what you missed if you're just tuning in. >>> welcome to hour three of "squawk on the street." here's what's happening so far. >> the real question is whether or not the president will weigh

you. rob, invest in state we're in manufacturing invested in 20 states. my question goes to innovation funds which you brought it. at which stage are you focusing on? is it with respect to either extension or the startups? then on an execution basis, which the regional plan as far as international strategy? >> well look, i think it's for those of us who in the government job, would you want to be a bit like the classic economic look, is you want to look for where we're under investing as a country, or were we have too little capital as a country going to private sector, where because individual private actors do not feel they get the full benefit from those investments. but we as a country would be richer if there was more investment in those areas. and so i think one of the things that we are trying to look at is, i think the expressions become, where are the valley of death? mean, where are those places where in the innovative process for companies, where they are not able to get the capital they need, perhaps one of the gazelles, one of the fast-growing companies. and i think the ha

would throw economy back into a deep recession, there would be nothing that would rob more americans and hurt our most vulnerable citizens more than being -- having their house go back underwater because of a rise in interest rates, or that potential of a job disappear because an employer decides to end up no longer active, or that unemployment benefits don't get extended because we chose to punt rather than deal with this issue. and, again, we go over a cliff, and if the chances are only 10% that this throws us back into a deep recession, unlike in the past, unlike the fiscal crisis of 2008, we don't have extraordinary measures of stimulus or the fed being able to dramatically lower interest rates. so i believe, mr. president, that we do need balanced, responsible, at least $4 trillion deal. a deal, again, that i believe counts the cuts we've already made, that adds additional real revenue. and again, as i mentioned earlier, i think the president has started too low in terms of the amount of revenue we need. we took $4.5 trillion out of the revenue stream over the last ten years. i

committee, max baucus of montana. in the meantime, from this morning, a group that heard from rob portman and the director of the economic council gene sperling. we will show you as much of their remarks as we can until the portion with senator baucus gets under way. >> actually, they just give my speech. i would like to grow and not slow the economy. that is part of the answer to this. we may disagree on how we do it, but we are not going to get the fiscal house in order without having additional revenue, and that comes from growth. we also need to restrain spending, we need to do both. in washington, there is such a deep fiscal hole right now we cannot find it without both. again, we will have differences of opinion on how to do it. there are strong opinions on its sides -- on each side, both sides, but that is why we need a discussion today, why we need a successful outcome, not only to the fiscal cliff talks, but also to the longer issue of debt and deficit, and long-term growth. i was asked to focus on what might be possible in terms of possible tax reform. i know tax reform and heal
